HAMPTON, NH—In celebration of the University of New Hampshire’s (UNH) 150th anniversary, Smuttynose Brewing Company and UNH have partnered to release 1866, an Extra Special Bitter session ale, in early March in six-pack cans and draft. Named for the year UNH was founded, this unique, palatable beer is perfect for all occasions, regardless of your school affinity.

“We’re really excited to help the university celebrate such a major milestone,” said Peter Egelston, Founder & President of Smuttynose Brewing Company. “University of New Hampshire has such a storied history and legacy, and we’re honored to help commemorate that.”

Inspired by UNH’s forthcoming brewing science major, 1866 ESB features two different types of British malts, as well as our standard house malt and chico yeast.  It’s hopped with Willamette, Citra, and Sterling hops to create a pleasing, malty front with a slightly bitter, hoppy back to balance it out.
